is there a reason your 3 year old still needs a buggy? tbh my 3 year old doesn't have one, she walks.

think maximum weights are in the owners manual

I think you're better off sticking with a buggy rather than the coachbuilt pram, as they're not really designed for bigger children. I would imagine that with the fantastic suspension they have it would be quite wobbly on top with a big 3 year old in. Plus, if yours is anything like the kids I look after they're quite wriggly and tend to want to climb in and out!

Graco suggests that 18kg is max for their single pushchairs... which is almost 3 stone

Mountain buggy say that theirs is 25kg max...

Babydan is 23kg (depending on style)

it all depends what buggy you have/want... you should be able to find the info on google!
